Time Series and Big Data Analytics with Spark (SparkR) and R

A session at Big Data TechCon Chicago 2015

  • Siamak Amirghodsi

This 150 minute tutorial will teach the participants the knowhow and the recipe to explore time series data and build advanced predictive models in an instructor led learning environment. The emphasis will be on building big data predictive analytic models using Apache Spark. In these two sessions we will build and model time series using R and Spark by focusing on the newly released SparkR interface. With a blend of theory and hands-on practice sessions in R and Spark, you will acquire an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge in predictive time series models. The session would culminate with the participants building a predictive model using Spark/R with a popular stock such as APPL or GE.
